law. nothing like it existed in the country back then. but republican mitt romney and the late democratic senator ted kennedy and a bunch of other folks from the state worked very, very hard to craft a law that made universal coverage possible in the great state of massachusetts. governor romney signed that law publicly with a big grin on his face back in 2006. well, today, president obama returned to that very room to talk about his signature health care law, which is based on what massachusetts did that worked so well in that state. the president was introduced by mitt romney's successor in massachusetts, governor duval patrick, and both the president and his friend, governor patrick, talked about what has gone wrong or can go wrong, with health care in your state. they talked about what could go wrong in the initial rollout, what goes wrong and how that stuff can get fixed. >> but our launch seven years ago was not flawless. we asked an i.t. staffer who has been at our connecter since the beginning, what the start-up was like, and i'm quoting. we didn't have a consequence is
, we'll have to charge more. there are reasons to not be too afraid. the law has various complicated mechanisms that compensate insurers, a lot of cost will get transferred to taxpayers and that's a problem for the federal budget but may not be a problem for the insurance market. as long as the system is working right for 2015, the insurers will say we had an unusual circumstance where we ended up with a lot of sick people and now cross our fingers, it is working in 2015 and we expect more signups. they may not push the rates up so much. the insurers have a lot of reasons to want it to work. they don't want a death spiral with skyrocketing insurance rates more than any of the rest of us do. it's not time to panic yet. the sooner the better they can get the website fixed the less we have to worry about the enrollment problems. >> extending and delaying was not an original part of the plan, but neither were the incredibly problematic glitches that we're having to deal with now. there's -- i'm really not that surprised you have a number of democrats pushing the extending at least the en
circuit court of appeals reinstated a ruling forcing abortion clinics to close. now, it is the same law that now texas gubernatorial candidate wendy davis filibustered this year. the author of the decision, appointee of president george w. bush. and then yesterday the d.c. circuit took aim at obama care and found private employers can refuse to provide health plans that give access to birth control under the affordable care act. the authority of that decision, justice rogers-brown. another bush w. appointee. judge brown, if employers oppose birth control on religious grounds, what about viagra? but i digress. brown and owen are not just any appointees but both put on the bench in 2005 after only a two-year democratic delay of their nominations. republicans threatened the use the nuclear option to vote them through with a simple majority. that led to something that we rarely hear about, a deal. seven democrats, seven republicans. the gang of 14. they came together and decided from then on judicial nominees would only be filibustered under extraordinary circumstances. ideology not being o
to be in panic mode. they are firing out about the president's explicitly clear health care law which did not turn out to be true. promise, if you like your plan, if you like your doctor you can keep them. we heard it over and over and over again. fact, over ten, perhaps as many as 15, perhaps more million people will lose their plans. and perhaps their doctors. and this administration knew it at the very time the president promised us otherwise. tonight, we investigate how the president's signature legislative achievement has come to shock and distress millions of americans tonight instead of helping them. we'll show you exactly why millions of americans are being kicked off of their insurance plans at this moment. and what happens if they cannot get insurance before their current plans expire. are these people going to be left uncovered? wouldn't that be ironic? we'll investigate why the administration is now putting all the blame on the insurance companies, should it have foreseen that they would act in this manner? did they lay the groundwork that would essentially force them to act i

in the cr we passed a law that president obama signed. quote, prior to making such credits and deductions available, the secretary shall certify that the exchanges verify such eligibility consistent with the requirements of the act. here's the question. are we really verifying at the front end whether a person is actually eligible for these subsidies or not? and here's why this matters. if they're not eligible for the subsidy and then once we reconcile these records, they get taxed the money back off of their refund. and so this is what i mean when i say rude awakenings. people are signing up for insurance. they're getting tax credit subsidies funded by taxpayers. the irs is already telling us they're confused about how to do this. you're not telling us whether or not you're proactively determining whether, say, an under 26-year-old is actually eligible for the subsidies you're trying to sell them and the problem is once we learn whether or not they were eligible and if they weren't, people in good faith will be signing up for subsidies that they're not eligible for. >> i think you're ask
president obama signed the affordable care act into law have been turbulent, period marked by relentless and unanimous resistance from the opposition to establish law, consider this. president franklin roosevelt rolled out a series of programs he designed to combat the great depression, programs to build things, grow things, establish union rights and retirement programs for some federal workers. when fdr established the new deal, he, too, was met with fierce opposition. not just from members of the other party, but from the courts. during roosevelt's first term as president, the supreme court declared parts of his program unconstitutional. naturally that did not sit well with fdr so he sent congress a bill that would give the president the authority to appoint one new supreme court justice for every sitting justice over the age of 70. since there were six justices over 70 years old back then, that would mean six new justices. presumably all of them democrats. fdr lost the new deal rulings 6-3, but on a 15-member court with six new democrats, six new fdr appointees, he probably would hav
scrutiny, as white house officials admit some plans will cease to exist under the law. >> it's true there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards and, therefore, do not qualify for the affordable care act. there are some that can be grandfathered if people want to keep insurance that's substandard. what is also true is americans who have insurance on the existing individual market will now have numerous options available to them. >> reporter: president obama making an obama care pitch to young people. you must sign up for health insurance to avoid a fine. >> when you look at the number of young people who actually want health insurance but are having trouble affording it, the fact we're making it affordable for them for the first time, that's a big deal. >> reporter: a new study shows 70% of eligible americans between 18 and 34 can now purchase coverage for less than $100 per month. that's if they can sign up. health care.gov was knocked offline sunday, along with the data hub that verifies eligibility for government subsidies.

republican nominee for president mitt romney was critical of president obama's handling of the law. >> i think the key thing that the president is trying to get away from and that is he told people they could keep their insurance and that wasn't the truth. whether you like the model of obama care or not the fact the president sold it under a model is not true the. the only way he can rebuild credibility is work with republicans and democrats and rebuild a foundation. we got to have a president that can lead. right now he's not able to do so. >> as for the website government officials say healthercare.gov will go off line temporarily on a daily basis to fix its ongoing issues. >> robert gibbses i want to go back to something that was said before in the "the washington post." it's stunning that you have the biggest start up ever run by somebody that had never run a start up before or had business experience before. i mean, looking back, people are scratching their heads for years how did they make these mistakes. how did mistakes like this happen inside the west wing? >> i think that's a f

in a political sound bite, is for the vast majority of americans, this law leaves you alone. that's what critics of this law miss when they talk about a socialized takeover of our system. if you have employer insurance today or you get your insurance from the government today, you're left alone by this law. the law really only affects the minority of people who don't have insurance or who buy on their own. among those who buy on their own, some will be forced to buy more generous plan than they have today. that's because the plans they have today aren't real insurance and we're going to move them into real insurance. technically, yes, the president did not focus on the 2% to 3% of americans who will have to buy up their insurance plans because of this law. i think in the ledger of political overstatements, it's a pretty small one. >> yeah, it amounts to about 9 million people, i believe, by having read a speech you gave. >> i would say it's more like 6 to 9 million people, depending how you define it. >> okay.

. that's not true. it will be fixed by november. then it's that the entire law needs to be replaced. the republicans have yet to offer any alternative. 40 plus votes to repeal the law is not a viable alternative. we heard ted cruz argue that it will bankrupt america. they say that the law will actually reduce the deficit by hundreds of billions of dollars. then there's this little sugar blum, that it will wreck the economy. that's a hard one to make when the stock market hit an all-time high. thank you congressman. i'm beginning to fall in love with everybody in new jersey. tell me about the tenor of the discussion today. >> it was all scare tactics and the gop trying to sabotage the affordable care act. the first thing was this idea that you mentioned at first about the insurance companies taking away your plan. this is private insurance in a competitive market. so the insurers that are canceling these individual policies are doing so because they are not going to be able to sell them. if you have a skeletal plan that has very vifew benefits and cosa lot and somebody else is on the
